What a journey it’s been. Setting a new world record was one thing; learning the stories of Jason Medina, St John Ambulance services and the battle of raising mental awareness and having open conversations about these issues, has been eye opening, emotional and inspiring.
We’d like to thank everyone who got involved, from sharing the story to donating what time and money they had to help out St Johns never ending cause.
Thanks to everyone who helped us fundraiser $14,069.69 for St John!
Thank you so much to Jason for being an advocate for people to open up and seek help.
Thanks heaps to Sarah Bloxham for helping get the word out whilst pulling in big shifts for St Johns, which all of their amazing staff do.
2020’s a funny old beast so far, so be sure to look out for one another, holla at your neighbour and check in on folk and whanau in your community to see how they’re doing – we’re all here to help out each other.
